Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
The best way to explain this, without spoilers, is to compare it to playing chess with one's self. All of the action is there but the play is so very balanced it isn't interesting and you don't know for whom to root. Each stage of the war is viewed very pragmatically without anyone ever getting any real advantage... at least for some time. (no spoilers) Many people will like this series, but it was not among my favorites
That being said, Dietmar Wehr is a master story teller in the Synchronicity Wars series. If you are looking for an extremely well written and engaging series, I recommend you start there. Or, another fantastic option is The Lost Fleet by John G. Hemry.
What did you like best about The System States Rebellion Omnibus: Books 1-2? What did you like least?
The story had the cyclical nature that Wehr pulled off so well in the Synchronicity War but without the level of action and personal involvement in advancing technology that made that series so interesting. The AI/computer system in this series was boring and dull.
Any additional comments?
While this book is a decent listen I don't recommend it unless you're bored and have credits to burn. Instead check out Wehr's Synchronicity War series for a much more amusing and engaging series.
